Chasing Saddam's weapons
Panorama's Jane Corbin in Iraq
Panorama has followed the inspectors for three months
Panorama: Chasing Saddam's Weapons was broadcast on Sunday, 9 February, 2003 at 2215 GMT on BBC One.

Panorama goes to Iraq in search of the "smoking gun" that could lead to war.

The attention of the world has been focused on the UN Weapons Inspectors' search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

During this time, Panorama has gained access to both sides in the game of hide and seek that stands between Saddam's Iraq and war.

Panorama's Jane Corbin reports from Baghdad as it braces itself for conflict.

She visits the weapons sites where inspectors have been concentrating their efforts, and interviews the Iraqi officials and scientists who run them.

Panorama has followed the inspectors for three months, in Iraq, New York and Vienna, during a period which has taken them from early planning, to the battle for more time, as they come under increasing pressure from Washington.

As one of the few documentary crews that has managed to get into Iraq, Panorama visits the sites at the centre of the dossiers compiled by the British and US Governments and provides a unique insight into a nation on the brink of conflict and invasion.

We assess what has happened to Iraq's weapons of mass destruction and whether there are breaches of the UN resolution which support those who are calling for war.

Production team:
Reporter: Jane Corbin
Producer: Darren Kemp and Thea Guest
Editor: Mike Robinson
